Dr. Janet McKim grew up in New Jersey. She received her BS from Rutgers and her DVM from The Ohio State University where she met Jack Love, a classmate and the love of her life. They owned a practice together while raising their children Mike and Gillian in Middleburg, VA. During those hectic years she managed to complete her certification in veterinary acupuncture and the use of traditional Chinese herbs. Mike and Gillian graduated from the College of Charleston with their parents, 2 dogs and 5 cats joining them in Charleston. Dr. McKim is currently secretary/treasurer of the Trident Veterinary Medical Association and serves on the board of the South Carolina Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners. She is proud to be the Medical Director of VCA Charles Towne Animal Hospital, where all of our patients are treated with gentle words, caring hearts, and capable hands.
